Yeah tell me about it, one of Micahel Biehn's best performances in my opinion.

Re: Trailer

Biehn's performance was good, I'll grant you that. But I think his portrayal as Hick's in Aliens was his best.

Re: Trailer

Well if you're going for best performance I'd have to say Reese. I know it's one of his favourites, that and Johnny Ringo. I think the character has more depth and weight than either Hicks or Coffey does. Don't get me wrong they're all good performances, and I think Aliens is the better film, but I still think his portrayal of Reese was spot-on. Especially when you consider what his character has to do, not only all the action, but the emotional stuntedness from a life of horror, plus he has to give all the exposition. It's easily forgotten now as the movie canon is so well known, but if you knew nothing whatsoever about the Terminator movies, and watched T1, you're totally reliant on Reese's character to give you all the answers. Exposition usually kills a film and a character, especially in an action/sci-fi flick, but Biehn's performance carries it through, plus Cameron's direction.
